Letter from a close friend – Veronica
This is my childhood friend Lisa. Lisa was born without arms or legs. We met in elementary school when my mom was assigned as her school aid. Lisa went on to graduate high school, college and is a career counselor at the Regent University. She also started Manyata Ministries with the goal of spreading God’s message of love and acceptance to others.
Like any other 40-something, Lisa’s annual salary pays her rent, groceries, insurance, etc. Unlike most other career women, however, Lisa requires at least 8 hours of caregiving per day to help her accomplish personal tasks like getting out of bed, getting dressed, using the restroom and eating; tasks most of us take for granted. Because she earns a salary, she is not eligible to receive disability or Medicaid to meet her caregiving expenses. However, her salary is not enough to cover the expenses of full-time caregiving.
If you have been blessed to meet Lisa, you know that there are very few things that she considers obstacles. Her desire to persevere has taught me so much.
